Tomorrow I go to the neurosurgeon and find out whether I can get out of this Halo brace now, or whether I have to wear it another two or four weeks, or whether it's not healing at all and I have to get a plate surgically inserted into my neck that will leave me with very limited head movement the rest of my life. It feels like it's healed up a lot, so I'm pretty confident it's not that last possibility, and I'm optimistic about it being the first one. But I'm feeling very excited and apprehensive; please send me good thoughts and, from those who pray, prayers.


  1. Thinking of you and wishing well.

    word verification: plate. Hope that's not an ill omen. ;P

  2. Thanks, LabRat!

    Luckily I don't believe in omens, or God's will being communicated through circumstance, which is the same thing.

  3. I'll be praying for the best possible outcome, whatever that may be. Only God knows best.
